The purpose of this document is to establish internal procedures for the identification and evaluation of consensus standards in research practice.  Adherence to the principles of good clinical practice is universally recognized as a critical requirement to the conduct of human subject’s research.  Although this study is not conducted in the US,  The Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) regulations is used as guidance to assist clinical investigators in the assurance that the rights, safety, well-being and confidentiality of study participants are protected.
